Here is every Pirates Of The Caribbean ” movie in chronological order. Prior to the original 2003 Pirates of the Caribbean film, studio pirate movies were considered box office poison. High-profile flops included Cutthroat Island and Disney’s animated adventure Treasure Planet. Faith in Pirates of the Caribbean, Das based on the iconic ride, was so low that at one point an alternative direct-to-video film starring Christopher Walken as Jack Sparrow was considered.
Instead, Disney rolled the dice on the project and it paid off beautifully. The film’s witty script combined with Gore Verbinski’s direction made the first Pirates of the Caribbean a juggernaut success. The film has spawned four sequels to date, with the franchise collectively grossing nearly $5 billion. In 2020, it was confirmed that Margot Robbie would be facing a new Pirates spin-off, although no real story details have been announced for this new entry.
The Pirates of the Caribbean movies do not use Roman numerals so unless viewers have paid attention over the years, the exact viewing order can be confusing. Here is the chronological order for the series.
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003).
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Dead Man’s Chest (2006)
Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End (2007)
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011)
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017).
While Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow could be the unifying factor between each installment, the first three films revolved around the love story between Keira Knightley’s Elizabeth and Orlando Bloom’s Will. Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man ‘s Chest and At World’ s End were shot from back to back and reviews for both were mixed, with their excessive running times and abundance of subplots being a source of criticism.
Neither Knightley nor Bloom returned for the fourth entry Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, which instead had a romantic subplot between Mermaid Syrena and Missionary Philip. The story focused on the hunt for the Fountain of Youth, but while reviews remained mixed, the film was another out-of-control success. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is the latest installment, featuring a literal ghost from
Jack’s past-played by Javier Bardem-coming back to seek revenge. In addition to the Margot Robbie Pirates of the Caribbean spinoff, a sixth film is also in the works, with Dead Men Tell No Tales co-director Joachim Rønning and possibly Karen Gillan in the lead role.
